Sophorn's Story

Sophorn, a mother of one, sells groceries and cosmetics for a living. She also grows rice on a farm to help support her family. Sophorn's main challenge is that she lacks the financial capital she needs to restock her grocery store. As a result, she is unable to meet the needs of her clients and her business is losing its customers.

With a World Vision loan Sophorn will be able to restock her grocery store and meet the demand of her customers. With the additional profits she will be able to pay for her family's expenses, send her children to school, and expand her grocery business. In the future Sophorn would like to own a store in the market as well.
